    I recently received a private message from Jeepcares....it states that as of now, and to for the foreseeable future the Jeep Wrangler/Gladiator will not be eligible for the military discount. Now that's a shame. For once in my life, as a die-hard Jeep fan, I am ashamed of their actions. I am at the Easter Jeep Safari every year and at their display show, there is always a huge presence of military members. Both current and retired. I cant believe that they overlooked the thought that the vehicles that they were so proud to display there, that are for sale now, would be wanted by the faithful! I wont be ordering until the military discount is instituted. I encourage any military members that feel as I do to send a message to FCA in any way you deem appropriate.

    That is a shame! Given the heritage of Jeeps and the military, it seems so inappropriate. Doesn't make any sense. Hope FCA changes this.

    Thanks to all military members for their service. If anyone deserves a discount here, it's you folks.

    Bastards!

    I bet all the discounts are turned on by the winter holiday season though.

    Certainly doesn't make sense to this retired vet. $500 for each military person purchasing these shouldn't be forgone for short-term profit......

    Definitely, considering the promotional video for the LE freedom contest was done by a vet... I find this to be strange that they would do this - maybe just a miscommunication between FCA and the dealers and this will be cleared up soon?

    I am a vet and yeah it sucks, but I am not looking at the discount like an entitlement. It is one thing if they first offered it for the Gladiator and then pulled it, but to not offer it out the gate is their business decision.

    NICE!

    Doesn't apply to Vets but I'm very happy to see the kids on active, reserve, guard, duty getting a little bit of a break.
